It took the CUN counter agent about 30 minutes to correct their mistake.

Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour, meaning we arrived at almost midnight and for me and a few other people their electronic boarding passes did not work properly I was refused at the departures gate and told to go to the British airways counter to get a paper boarding pass printed out. I also saw some other people with British airways electronic boarding passes having similar problems."
Pros: "Staff was very nice"
Cons: "Even soft drinks are charged at a fee, and this is not a budget line! And they lost one of our bags in Split."
Pros: "Great seats, lots of room. The ground crew were great and helped with our baggage and the cabin crew was as good as they could be given the restrictions on their jobs."
Cons: "Had to pay for water or drink tepid tap water, we were not even given water or a cheap bag of pretzels, also the plane had not been cleaned forever, there was crusty food on the floor and trash. It was very strange for an international flight."
Pros: "Breakfast was tasty"
Cons: "Food choices not good for lunch/ dinner"
Pros: "It's a non-stop from Austin to Heathrow. Flight attendants were helpful and professional. Flight was on time."

Cons: "Seats not comfortable; wasn't brought promised water, landed with headache as a result. Flightlate"
Cons: "Flight attendant moved my purse into an overhead bin while I slept They Couldn’t find it for over an hour. Panic. Passport and cash in purse."
Pros: "Airline accommodated the delay with free room and meal voucher."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 24 hours. Text message was sent on route that the flight was on time. Mechanical problems."
Cons: "The only complaint I have is our bags getting lost twice. I’m very understanding that these things happen. But for it to happen twice seems like people might be careless to the problem."
Pros: "The new boarding process (just one general call, rather than a bunch of zones) was simple, quiet, and efficient."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable. There were small ridges on the left and right side - perhaps to compensate for the very shallow seat depth. But these made it hard to sit more on one side of the seat than the other, something you'd want to do if you were sat next to someone who took up a good deal of armrest area. Media screens had a good selection but were unresponsive and had poor picture quality."
Pros: "Love BA food was outstanding! Best breakfast on a plane ever."
Cons: "Sadly they no longer offer the mid flight snack. Hence only good for food."
Cons: "My suitcase didn't arrive at the airport in Bologna with my flight. I am still waiting for it and inside I have all I need."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. It was also held back with us on the plane. We were not even offered water or anything while we waited. It ended up being 1.5 hours delayed plus a 3 hour flight with no food. You could purchase snacks and drinks, including water. I learned my lesson to buy before going on the plane next time."
Pros: "Crew was late due to Thanksgiving traffic. The Crew was then very rude during the flight and unapologetic for what has to be the most ridiculous reason for a flight delay I have ever experienced. If a passenger had that excuse, do you think the airline would wait for the passenger? Lame."
Pros: "On time and easy."
Cons: "BA have stopped giving free snacks and drinks which was always refreshing and different to other airlines! It set them apart but it's just back to another airline now!"
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful. Mechanical problem delayed flight by an hour. Pilot and staff were helpful with updates. Kayak continue to have best prices that I can find."
Cons: "In economy, meal out was a dried out pasta (or chicken) and arrival meal was a choice of candy bar or cookies! Eat before boarding or bring your own. The plane is well maintained and clean but just very old. Seems the in-flight entertainment is no longer updated monthly. If you fly a lot of long haul, this can be disappointing."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that one has to pay for any refreshments on the flight, even for coffee, juice, or soda. When I asked for water, the flight attendant assumed that I wanted to pay for bottled water; I had to specify that I wanted regular water."
Cons: "We did not know it was Finnair until we got to the airport and could not find Brittish Airlines flight. This is on Kayak because none of your information indicated anything except a British Air flight. We asked several people and finally figured it out only they changed the gate at that point and we almost missed the flight after sitting in the airport for three hours"
Cons: "no air vents over seats"
Cons: "the only hard part was the boarding in London, very hard to hear the boarding directions. Kind of chaotic. BUT it all worked out"
Pros: "The price of the flight offers is what made me purchase through kayak, but the disconnect with the airline and booking agency left me stranded and ultimately required me to buy a flight directly that will take me almost half a year to pay off not to mention the inconvenience of switching airports and sleeping on a bench for 4hrs."
Cons: "When I missed my flight, the airline would not offer assistance because I booked through an online vendor (webjet through kayak) and when I called webjet they failed to help me rebook, made me buy a new flight, then when I called looking for the flight information, they managed to cancel the flight and then claimed I had requested this when I had done no such thing. On top of this they only offer next calendar day booking so even though they are fully responsible for botching up the second flight I booked. I have talked to 10 individuals from different agencies. Everyone passes blame and responsibility off on someone else. On top of everything else, noone but the American Airlines representatives showed any empathy or concern for my being stranded for the night. Based on this experience, I will do everything in my power to dissuade people from using Kayak, webjet, amadeus and British Airways."
Cons: "The foot rest broken and I told them they don't do anything even I have bad knees"
Cons: "1 hour delay on return journey on a packed flight, but at least that delay was in the airport and not sitting on a plane"
Pros: "Fold-down head rests"
Cons: "No tuck box"
Cons: "It would be nice to have a free juice or soft drink on this flight. They only offer free water, and then you have to ask for it."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Seats not comfortable"
Pros: "Great service & crew. Food good for aircraft food"
Cons: "Half hour delay but no big deal actually. Could have done with more leg room, but again flight was e cellent price"
Pros: "The crew were very nice and helpful"
Cons: "The inflight entertainment system was at least 15 years old and it did not work in my seat despite numerous attempts to reset. As someone who cannot sleep on flights I was very uncomfortable and annoyed that I had to sit through 12 hours of flying with nothing to watch or listen to."
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and helpful. My only complaint is the turbulence, but there's nothing hat can be done about that."
Pros: "Staff was extremely friendly"
Cons: "Seats were too close and comfort was hard for the long flights. I wish premium economy was better explained to one world partners prior to booking so there would be access to better seats."
Pros: "Shame that you do not even serve a glass of water!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "They make you pay for WATER on BA!"
Cons: "We missed our connection flight, to make things worst, we had to wait 3 1/2 hours standing in line just to speak a British airways staff because many of the desks were empty and half the desks were catering to first class and business class passengers"
Pros: "On time and accommodating"
Cons: "All ok"
Cons: "First time this year in economy. Very disappointed that on board service is now charged. I expect to pay for a cup of tea on Ryan air but not in BA. As every one has to pay it means the service is very slow and so the trolley blocks the isle for a long time. A step in the wrong direction."
Pros: "Up and down in all the right places and we were on time."
Cons: "Food was unimpressive to say the least. And the entertainment system was awful, the movie would frequently stop and was pixilated. Weird for a new 777."
Pros: "Great movies, smooth flight, everyone was polite"
Pros: "Early arrival!"
Pros: "The crew were quite friendly and very helpful"
Cons: "Flight was late leaving and check-in could have been more organized"
Pros: "Helpful staff nice attitudes, Boarding was excellent, as I needed special help. ditto on arrival."
Cons: "Seats are too hard on the human back!"
Cons: "This flight was fine, but it was a day too late."
Cons: "Seats broken..no free deink"
Cons: "Nothing that was good."
